It hit when I least expected it. Last Saturday afternoon I started to cough a little more and then before I knew it I was into a full fledged chest cold. This is a little unusual for me. I usually get head colds - you know those messy waste baskets filled with used tissues days. But this hit me right in the throat and chest. I am on day 5 without a voice.
I wasn't ready for this yet.
Sometime each fall I realize that cold and flu season is upon us and I check to make sure that we have medicine ready so that if one (or both) of us gets sick that we have supplies. I had not gotten to that point yet this fall. So, there was a quick trip to get some Mucinex and throat lozenges.
